"She'll be right"....Oh Come on NZ!!!
In 2008, my Kiwi wife gave birth to our first child in London, my old home and where we first met. It was at that moment I knew we were moving to New Zealand to bring up the family. My wife was a proud Cantabrian, we had got married in Christchurch the year before so I had had the chance to see the beauty, serenity and pace of life and I couldn't wait to move.
"She'll be Right Mate!"
The "She'll be Right" Kiwi attitude rang so true to me and reminded me of my younger years growing up in the South West of England and to give my kids that opportunity was awesome. I did not want them to experience the intolerance, violence, crime and general fast paced, aggressive life that was UK 2008.
Roll on 13 years, earthquakes, terrorist shootings, crime on the rise, covid-19 creating desperation and I see NZ fast becoming what England had become back then. The difference though......NZ has a chance to acknowledge, address and halt the slide. But....lets loose the "She'll be right" because unless you have a "What If Plan" then, as the picture says...we are burying our heads in the sand and leaving our "rears" exposed to the same atrocities that snuck up on not only the UK, but Australia and USA and many other countries around the globe.
So what now?
Evaluate, Plan, Rehearse and Review and let's not get caught out. Stop living in the mindset that it won't happen here, because it IS! Terrorism, Gang Violence, Drug Harm...it's all happening and it's all getting worse.
